I am a huge fan on a website www.scubaboard.com it is a forum with tons of resources for the avid diver. One of the many perks I have found with this website is its ability to help network the dive community. Recently scheduled was a “Venice Beach Bash” an annual dive event where a bunch of divers get together, the local charter captains offer free dives out to the bone yard. If you are ever in the area around June take a look at the site and plan to meet some great people, and do some awesome dives. I recommend joining the site regardless and if there is a referral option please mention COWSskateGOOD, you will find TONS of reviews, spots, tips, accident reviews…..
